NOTES
1. Poodle is worked in rounds on circular needle, usingthe magic loop technique. Optionally, double-pointedneedles can be used.2. Pieces are worked separately and sewn together.3. Collar, leg and ear poufs are worked with one strandeach of Pomp-a-Doodle and Super Saver held together.For ease in completing stitches, yarn over with eachstrand of yarn separately before completing stitch (yarnover with Pomp-a-Doodle, yarn over with Super Saver,then complete stitch).4. When working with Pomp-a-Doodle, make two stitchesper space between pompoms. Occasionally make onlyone stitch per space for a uffy, looser look.5. Take care to keep pompoms on the outside of the work.6. To aid in keeping the pompoms on the outside, work inrows of Garter stitch for the Pomp-a-Doodle rows of legsand ears. After the Pomp-a-Doodle rows are complete,resume knitting in the round. The hole created whenreverting to rows can be closed using yarn tail. TheGarter stitch will not be visible underneath the Pomp-a-Doodle.
